All the furore surrounding Wexford's brilliant win over Kilkenny has been dampened somewhat by the news that talented forward Liam Og McGovern has suffered a recurrence of the cruciate knee ligament injury that sidelined him for all of last year.
McGovern's worst fears were confirmed in a scan after he damaged the knee during an A v. B game ahead of the clash against Kilkenny.
The St Anne's clubman was sidelined for 12 months having suffered the same injury, but he returned to action when coming on as a sub during the Leinster SHC quarterfinal win over Laois.
Surgery on the knee will take place shortly, but McGovern is set for another 12-month spell on the sidelines.
Another cruciate injury victim, Andrew Shore is back to full fitness and is working away with the squad ahead of the provincial decider.
